Hookers & Blow – featuring Dizzy Reed and Alex Grossi – have unleashed single Shakin’ ahead of the release of a full covers album later this year.

The now legendary project, formed by long time Guns N’ Roses keyboardist Reed and Quiet Riot guitarist Grossi, has breathed new life into the Eddie Money classic.

And Hookers & Blow’s down and dirty debut single offers an exciting glimpse into the future.

“We are all huge Eddie Money fans and actually got to know him personally over the years, said Grossi.

“He was an amazing talent and an equally amazing and hysterically funny person who touched so many people. 

“He always got a kick out of this project whenever I mentioned it to him.

“So for this to be the first release off the record seemed like a perfect tribute to him. Rest In Peace Eddie.”

Hookers & Blow will release their covers album via Golden Robot Records.

And Grossi added: “We have actually found the perfect record label.

“The guys at Goldon Robot actually get ‘IT’ as far as what Hookers & Blow is all about.

“We are tracking an album of some of our favourite tunes, with some of our favourite people and just having FUN with it. 

“We can’t wait to share some of what we have planned for this thing.” 

The band has tapped producer Alistair James who recently worked with Joe Perry, Alice Cooper and Johnny Depp on the newest Hollywood Vampires album.
